The District Grants Committee anticipates having approximately $5,000 of untapped funds following the May 24 deadline for grant applications. The Committee has agreed that this money would be used at the discretion of District Governor Al Bonney. With the recent tragedy in Nepal, DG Al will be allocating those funds to go to Shelter Box USA.
DG Al and the Grants Committee strongly encourages our Rotary clubs and our Rotarians to reach out to the people of Nepal. No amount is too small. Every single dollar that is given will make a difference. Continue reading for specific details of how you and your club can assist.
It's one of Rotary's most highly regarded programs--so much so, that some employers credit hours invested by Rotarians as formal leadership training! In District 6290 we feel so strongly about the quality and impact of this program that we have budgeted funds that are available as matching scholarship funds -- Clubs send one member and the District will fund a second. All you need to do is notify Kathy Hegedus at the District Office and she'll make it happen for you!
